Carrick: I'm disappointed we did not win against Chelsea

2 min read

Interim Red Devils coach Michael Carrick says he is disappointed that Manchester United could not maintain the lead against Chelsea, despite his team having very few shots on goal.

United left Stamford Bridge by one point after a tough game against Chelsea. The hosts had 23 hits compared to United's three. However, it was the Red Devils who took the lead when Jadon Sancho converted a mistake by Jorginho in midfield.

But United coach Carrick shared his views after the game as to why he thought his team was leaving London with a bitter taste.

"In fact, I'm disappointed. When you are in the lead in a game like this, letting go of it is frustrating. I'm proud of the players and the band all week. In a difficult situation we tried to do our best. "But we have a slightly bitter taste," said the Englishman after the match.

"We came to win the game. I'm a little disappointed, I can not lie. I don’t think it was the penalty at all. They have had a lot of kicks, David De Gea had two receptions which we knew before the match that he would have to do one or two. In addition, I felt quite comfortable in the game. "Of course we want to be better," said Carrick at the end.
